La Quinta's median single-family home price is reporting at $393,000 this week. The median price per square foot is $198 and average days on the market are 119.   Reports show inventory is tightening and days on market are falling. The Market Action Index shows demand is heating up. Prices appear to have settled but don't expect prices to significantly move from these levels anytime soon. It is still a buyer's market no doubt with several months of inventory still available. However, I am finding that there is not a lot of "GOOD" property available right now. For a copy of the complete report, please email me.   Source: California Title Company, Altos Research Corp.

The 50th Bob Hope Chrysler Classic is sure to be just as big as the legend himself was. Especially since its host this year is Arnold Palmer! Palmer will host the event January 19-25, 2009.  The golf legend is the perfect choice to host this monumental event. Palmer has played in the Bob Hope Chrysler classic 42 times. Some of his best games were played in this Palm Springs staple of golf tournaments and contributed to Palmer's status as being the fifth on the all time win list. In Coachella Valley Arnold Palmer's name is synonymous with the event. In fact, 62 of his PGAS titles were made in Coachella. Arnold Palmer won't be the only celebrity out there on the links. He'll be in austere company with the likes of former major leaguer Bo Jackson and Tampa Bay Ray's Rookie of the Year Evan...

Are you a buyer, seller, or investor? Which ever category you fall into, chances are you've been frustrated at one time or another with this market. Today's home prices are lower now than they ever have been. The Desert Sun compares prices to those of 2003 but I believe home prices are closer to 2001. How often do you have the opportunity to step back into time?   Believe it or not, some buyers are very frustrated with today's market. Because home prices have fallen so low, when a home is priced right for the market, the house is selling at listed price or higher, with buyers getting into bidding wars. If your a buyer looking to get a bargain from the bank, be prepared to negotiate on their terms and buy the property as is, with no warranty.  Besides all this, it is actually a very good...

Are you wondering if purchasing a new tract built house can justify a little extra expense? While older houses may have charm, they lack many of the attributes that make new homes a superior buy. First, you must consider the customization of your house. With a newer tract home, you need not worry about asbestos, lead paint, or other toxic building substances, which may compromise your health. As well, a newer residence will be current with all modern safety and fire codes, offering you superior protection from unforeseen events. Second, a brand new house usually incorporates energy saving technology. In a era where energy costs are on the rise, being able to select energy-efficient appliances and modern heating and cooling systems can save you thousands of dollars over the lifetime of y...
